The World of King Arthur
King Arthur, Camelot, Excalibur, Merlin, the Holy Grail, Lancelot, and Guinevere - these names are some of the most recognizable and evocative in the cultural heritage of the West. They conjure up vibrant images of medieval Europe, of chivalry, and of romance. But did Arthur really exist, or is Camelot only a dream? Snyder traces the impact of Arthur throughout history, surprising the reader with the vastness of his contribution to the world's people. Even the modern concept of romantic love is ascribed to the evolution of his legends in Mediaeval Europe. An excellent survey of Arthur and his legacy from ancient Rome to modern Hollywood.

Daily Life in the Middle Ages
Written in a style that is accessible to junior-high-school students and up,

and Cooking," "Building and Housing," "Clothing and Dressing," "Fighting,"
"Healing." "Clothing and Dressing," for instance, has sections on fabrics, clothing, fashions, and accessories. The section on fashions, has subsections for tunics and doublets, capes and cloaks, and other items of apparel. Black-and-white drawings and photographs.
Life in a Medieval Castle
Best place to start if you want to learn about medieval castles, how medieval castles came to be, the roles they served in medieval society, how military strategy through the middle ages centeredaround the castle, how their relevance declined with the changes in technology and the political scene that came with the late medieval period. Gives the reader a very clear picture of what life was like in and around the castle, from the nobility through to the staff needed to keep the castle running to the villagers at the bottom. It shows the various functions the castle staff needed to serve to keep things running smoothly, from chamberlains, chaplains, seneschals and stewards down to pantlers, haywards and reeves. Historical anecdotes used to show aspect of castle life, from the manner in which meals were served to the ways provisions were acquired in an era where money was by no means a common exchange, and how matters of jurisdiction often overlapped in problematic ways (a lord might have jurisdiction over a castle but not over the forest surrounding it which belonged to the king).
